Eco-Friendly & Natural. The Sea Sponge is a renewable natural resource. While harvesting, divers are careful to ensure that the base of the sponge remains intact. This puts into motion its natural reproduction. The sponge then will re-grow within a few years, often bigger and healthier than its original state. Studies show that areas harvested actually increase the population density of sponges. Additionally, the sponges have amazing regenerative powers as the natural process of the tide and currents will pick up sponges and they will re-grow in new locations.
Quality & Safety. Used since ancient times, the superiority of the Natural Sea Sponge is unmatched. Sea sponges are highly absorbent, create a luxurious lather, are softly textured, and are suitable for the most sensitive of skin. Natural sponges are more durable and last longer than synthetic sponges because they are more resistant to abrasion. They have been known to last as long as 8 years! Synthetic sponges will only last a very short time before they start falling apart and getting covered with mildew and bacteria. Natural sea sponges actually have enzymes in them that inhibit the growth of mold, mildew, and bacteria. Yet, they are toxin-free and hypo-allergenic. In addition, natural sea sponges are better for bathing and cleaning because they soak up and hold more water without dripping. Sea sponges are self-cleaning through their intricate system of canals. Therefore they wash out more quickly and easily, and will not retain objectionable odors. They are softer, clean better and will not peel like synthetic sponges while being used. Sea sponges offer a safe alternative for washing your child, while surpassing the quality of man-made substitutes.
